Lemon Slice
Recipe type: lunch box
  • 100 grams butter
  • approx ¾ can of condensed milk (this equates to 296.25 grams to be precise!)
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind (I add a little bit more as I like it quite it zesty.)
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 packet Marie biscuits
  • 1½ cups icing sugar
  • ¾ cup coconut
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • You may wish to increase these quantities if you prefer a thinker icing on top. (I did slightly.)
  1. Crush biscuits until they are like a breadcrumb consistency. I put them in a plastic bag and crush using the wooden rolling pin and then pour into a medium sized bowl.
  2. Add coconut, and lemon rind to the biscuit mix.
  3. On a low heat melt butter and condensed milk.
  4. Pour the condensed milk and butter into the biscuit mix and combine well.
  5. Press this mixture into a lined baking tray.
  6. Place into fridge for approx an hour (when in a hurry, I have put it in the freezer for 10 - 15 minutes and this has also worked).
  7. To make the icing, mix all the ingredients together and then spread onto the set biscuit base. Refrigerate again until the icing has set.
  8. Once set cut the slice into fingers.
  9. Lemon slice keeps best in the fridge and if I need to layer it, I use baking paper to prevent them from sticking together.
